Polis Calls on Congress to End Marijuana Prohibition

Speaking alongside industry advocates, U.S. Rep. Jared Polis (D-CO) called Wednesday for Congress to end the prohibition on marijuana, stressing the need to reduce drug violence while hailing the medical cannabis market's capacity for growing the economy. "Ending the failed policy of prohibition with regard to marijuana will strike a major blow against the criminal cartels that are terrorizing Americans and Mexicans on both sides of the border," Polis said at the National Press Club, in response to a question from Raw Story. "It's been estimated that the drug cartels drive about half of ...

Jared Polis has ideas for closing federal budget gap

Although the so-called Gang of Six's proposalfor averting debt-ceiling catastrophe is getting the lion's share of attention right now, Representative Jared Polis has floated some revenue-raising ideas of his own, which the media has largely winnowed down to this: Legalizing marijuana would help close the budget gap. But if that shortchanges some of his other notions, Polis's spokesman isn't complaining. "You can't really blame the media for focusing on a controversial issue when you raise a controversial issue," says Polis communications director Chris Fitzgerald. "If it brings attention to ...

Polis, Issa Lead 26 Members of Congress in Letter Urging SEC to Implement Crowdfunding Rules
Representatives Jared Polis (CO-02), Darrell Issa (CA-49), Scott Peters (CA-52) and Vern Buchanan (FL-16), co-chairs of the House Innovation and Entrepreneurship Caucus, along with a bipartisan group of twenty-six colleagues, today sent a letter to Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) Chair Mary Jo White urging her to complete the “crowdfunding” rulemaking process as soon as practicable. The JOBS Act, which passed both houses of Congress with broad bipartisan support and was signed into law by President Obama on April 5, 2012, required the SEC to promulgate rules relating to these “crowdfunding” provisions by the end of 2012. “A key feature of the JOBS Act was Title III, which was supposed to reduce the burdens and hurdles for US startups and entrepreneurs to gain access to critical new sources of capital from more modest investors,” the Representatives wrote. “Due in large part to the lack of finalized federal rulemaking, states are now leading the way, harnessing
Bitcoin Event Pulls in Jared Polis, Bob Goodlatte, Mick Mulvaney
By Anne L. Kim Jared Polis and two other House members who have shown a piqued interest in digital currency are hosting an event on the topic Tuesday evening in a House office building. Polis, D-Colo., Reps. Robert W. Goodlatte, R-Va., and Mick Mulvaney, R-S.C., are the big names associated with BitCoin Demo Day from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the Rayburn House Office Building. Companies like Expedia, which earlier this year announced it would accept bitcoins to book hotels, and bitcoin payment processor BitPay will be there, according to a news release. According to a Polis aide, the event will cover the basics of digital currencies and their current and potential future uses. And it’ll give lawmakers a chance to ask questions and have experts address concerns, according to the aide. Earlier this year Polis — not long after the Federal Election Commission voted to allow bitcoin contributions to political action committees — announced he’d take such contributions for his re-e
Polis Statement on Upcoming Executive Order Prohibiting LGBT Workplace Discrimination by Federal Contractors
Representative Jared Polis (CO-02) today issued the following statement after President Barack Obama’s announcement that he will issue an executive order banning businesses from receiving federal government contracts unless they have a policy prohibiting discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity: “This executive order is a major step toward ensuring that LGBT employees have the same protections against discrimination and harassment that their colleagues already enjoy. I commend the President for his strong leadership on behalf of the LGBT community, and for ensuring that taxpayer funds cannot be used to pay contractors who choose not to honor all employees’ basic right to equality in the workplace. “Nevertheless, there are millions of LGBT Americans throughout the country still living with the fear that they can be fired solely because of their sexual orientation or gender identity. It is time for Congress to follow the President’s example by passing le
Polis-Salmon Bill on Competency-Based Education Passes the House of Representatives
Yesterday, the House of Representatives unanimously passed H.R. 3136, the Advancing Competency-Based Education Demonstration Project Act, sponsored by Representatives Jared Polis (CO-02) and Matt Salmon (AZ-05), by a vote of 414-0. The bill would increase access and affordability in higher education by allowing institutions the flexibility to provide a degree that is based on a student’s knowledge and skills instead of seat time. “I am thrilled that the House of Representatives recognized the promise of competency-based education by overwhelmingly passing this bipartisan bill,” said Representative Polis. “This legislation will allow colleges and universities the flexibility to shorten the time it takes to earn a degree and reduce college cost through self-paced programs based on student comprehension, rather than seat time. Competency-based education can increase access to higher education for contemporary students, who may have a full-time job, a family, or other commitments
